I dislike Memorial Day

Poignant, bittersweet memories are ever-present all day.

And while it lasts only 24 hours, its brevity only reinforces how it perfectly symbolizes the relentlessness of Time.

I don't know anyone personally who died in a US war, so for me it's not terribly poignant. It's more a nice excuse to lounge about in the hammock, grill burgers and eat ice cream.

Here, you're supposed to be scolded for not grasping the meaning of Memorial Day.

Not from me, though. After all, isn't that what US military personnel fought to preserve? That is, if you set aside the profit motive of war-making.

Well there is a quietness to it that, e.g., the 4th of July lacks. Yet it is, as we are always reminded, 'the unofficial start of summer'. I've always liked it, as I am a summery but somewhat quiet kind of gurl.

I had friends when I lived in DC, and we would picnic at Constitution Gardens (17th and Constitution) on Memorial Day. Or else on that strip of land across from the Watergate, right on the Potomac. I memorialize doing that today. Hardly any of us are in DC now, some not even alive.

Yes indeed, we too use "cookies." Don't you just LOVE clicking on these things on every single site you visit? I know we do! You can thank the EU parliament for making everyone in the world click on these pointless things while changing absolutely nothing. If you are interested you can take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT and we'll set a dreaded cookie to make it go away. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
